Anyone regretting reverse extraction orthodontics?

#1 Post by Kirti »

I had four premolar extractions with retraction. After noticing the negative consequences- sunken face, bigger nose, less space for tongue etc, I am thinking about going for reverse extraction orthodontics where they reopen extraction spaces and put implants.
However, I want to be extremely sure about the effects of the treatment. So does anyone think that reverse extraction orthodontics has negative effects?

I don't regret the procedure but wished I could of done more research before spending large amount of money on.

When I say research I mean look at the different orthodontists that do this procedure. In addition consider what you are trying to fix, because if you had teeth pulled out and you want to implant teeth back inside of your mouth, you are going to need to widen your arches to put those teeth back and make space. If you had teeth pulled already it was because you didn't have enough room or you had little. Either way your teeth are going to flare up when the orthodontist starts pushing teeth for space. However in my case my teeth need to be pushed back and upright.

If I had a different strategy of orthodontics growing up, I might not have ended up where I did as an adult. Obstructive sleep apnea, TMJD, nasal breathing problems, poor profile, recessed chin....

Extraction/retraction orthodontics probably didn't cause all of the issues; but they didn't help at all.

I would not recommend extraction orthodontics to anyone. It's easier for the orthodontist; not necessarily better for the patient.
Round 3 (lifetime) Damon stainless applied 3/16/20 (after 4 weeks attempting invisalign)
Upper ceramics 5/21/14, Lower stainless 5/28/14
Double jaw surgery was 6/18/15. Estimated time Jan 2016; still on at my 2 year anniversary...
Braces removed 7/20/18; upper and lower Hawley and Essix retainers with bonded lower too.
I'm emphatically against extraction orthodontics!
